I knit like a bugger yesterday...

and turning the heal was actually fun and isn't hard at all... I used this pattern here.. loads of instructions!!

the sock is just above my big toe... so I think I can change colors again and start to decrease...
I can't believe it's just about done!!

Kate, are you proud of me??

Tiffany, this gives me even more courage to start a sweater in the new year!!

good ribbing or bad ribbing... I'm not going to rip it apart!! that little bit took just about 1 1/2 hrs to do... I'll keep it just as is... it's my first try at socks, so this way I can see how much I've improved.... the charcoal color I'm doing a 3X1 ribbing for the leg part of the sock... I'm going to make them about 2 inches over the ankle, I don't like long socks.

let the saga continue.......

I cast on 40 sts on 3.5 needles and the 1X1 ribbing went great for a bit... then I recounted the sts and some how I had 41?~?~?!?! well what the heck?? so I knit 2 together and continued on...
this is the good side:

was at wally world the other day and seen this tweed yarn... it's a charcoal color with flecks of orange, teal, and purple in it.... I just walked by, and I heard this voice " MAKE ME INTO SOCKS!!!!" nope it wasn't a quite voice... so I turned around quickly and plopped it into the cart, found some orange, teal and purple for ribbing. ( ribbing is a total other for me?!?!)
it's my very first top of a knitted sock,

top of knitted sock... I love you ;~)
